Bournemouth International Triathlon

The 2017 Bournemouth International Triathlon took place on Sunday 10 September 2017. We will update this page as soon as we have dates for the 2018 Bournemouth International Triathlon.

The Triathlon takes place right next to Bournemouth Pier, and starts with the sea swim from Bournemouth beach. The fast bike ride then heads towards the market town of Ringwood on the edge of The New Forest. The PB smashing run follows a course along the seafront on the promenade from Bournemouth towards Boscombe Pier – with amazing views of The Isle of Wight on the way out and of The Purbecks on the way back.

Book accommodation at The Arlington for the 2018 Bournemouth International Triathlon

The Arlington Hotel offers secure cycle storage and a drying room for wet gear. The start of the triathlon is a short stroll from the Arlington – across the terrace, through the gate into the gardens and down the path.
